. i do know that -- so the atkins case was actually argued by a professor at the university of new mexico and he is constantly barraged by what's the best way to assess i.q., especially when you have these different tests and different measures, et cetera. i.q. is one of the most well studied things in psychology. so taking a brain scan and fitting your brain along a dimension and getting a value is just a slightly different way of doing it than giving you the tests and stuff like that. so i have not obviously testified to anything like that. i just tried to give that as an example. there is an enormous literature out there that is already peer-reviewed and published on i.q. there are dozens of papers. the big question is how well can i take a single person's brain scan and with what confidence can i get a number associated with it that we would derive an i.q. those measures and ways that we do that get better every month, basically, every year we're getting more and more accurate at taking a single piece of information or complex piece of information and fitting it. to my knowledg

now. joining us for a look at the fiscal health of the states is david atkins, ceo of the council of state governments. david, thanks for joining us. my question to you is, do you get the sense there is some complacency out there about this fiscal cliff? oh, they will get it done in the end and states are not really taking the necessary preparations? >> that's right, ashley. certainly from the states perspective we get the feeling the federal government is involved in one of those nightmares many had in college and wake up on the day of the test and been enrolled in a course and never even attended it. there is sense of foreboding and great sense of complacency at the federal government how we create even a process to deal with this perfect storm of so many issues that remain unresolved and to have an allic time bomb ticking that goes off on january 2nd. tracy: but the biggest issue really are the pensions, right? we have underfunded pensions across this country, at the federal level, at the state level. quite frankly private and public. how can they possibly fix that and save the
